As businesses and customers compete for each other online, local search is becoming an increasingly important part of online marketing.

Businesses are in fierce competition to get noticed in search engine results. And here is why:

  • Search is moving away from desktop
  • Traffic from local searches converts better
  • Google supports local business
  • Google is constantly redefining search results to serve users better
  • There is less competition in local search than in global search

Google uses this information to have a complete understanding of your business and to determine how to rank your agency in the search results. It is best practice to claim your profile and provide accurate information to Google so they’ll your agency in the search results. It is best that you answer every question they ask about your agency with as much details as possible making sure to use keywords you want to rank for. Make sure your business profile is 100% filled out. Previously, this product has been called Google+ and/or Google Places so you might already have a profile setup. If so, make sure it is up to date with all of your information and link to your website, business address, etc.
